In honor of the many marches being held from this past weekend, we were inspired to take a look back on the historic Women’s March from a couple weekends ago with our focus on Chicago. And let us tell you, CHI town definitely did not disappoint! We’ve complied a list of our favorites below, all extremely creative and reminding us that impact visual design truly has. Many thanks to everyone who participated and continue to inspire the public!
If you were as inspired by the #SignDesignCHI as we were, don’t forget to register for UNITE: Design for Social Activism in Chicago on 2/22. Our panel of diverse thought leaders, activists, and professionals will come together to discuss the importance of graphic design in branding social movements and political activism.

Roosevelt University students, from left: "So many women have helped me get where I am today." –Ronnie Smith "It's a common sense thing. We're all people, why should I have something she shouldn't have?" –Jason Curry "If I'm not here supporting the cause, who is? The first step to change is taking initiative." –Abdul Adebayo ?: @hilaryhiggins #WomensMarch #WomensMarchonChicago #Womensmarchchi
Today's march might have been over capacity but there was nothing but love and respect between marchers, police officers, and volunteers. There was a moment I noticed a volunteer who was clearly overwhelmed and struggling to get the crowd going in the right direction. I smiled and said "you're doing great!" And she thanked me with such relief. #respect #thisiswhyimarch #womensmarchCHI #womensmarchonchicago #feminist
